Morgantown, WV -- Geno Smith had a record-breaking performance in West Virginia's Big 12 debut.

Smith set school marks with eye-popping totals of 656 passing yards and eight touchdown throws as the ninth-ranked Mountaineers prevailed, 70-63, in a shootout with the No. 25 Baylor Bears.

The Heisman Trophy candidate ended with a school-best 45 completions on 51 attempts for the Mountaineers (4-0, 1-0 Big 12).

Nick Florence was equally impressive for Baylor (3-1, 0-1), throwing for 581 yards and five touchdowns.

But it wasn't enough for the Bears, who had their winning streak snapped at nine games.
